Precision oncology: a medical revolution already under way
Chairperson: Letizia Gabaglio
Made-to-measure treatment seemed an impossible dream just a few decades ago, although it has always been a medical objective. Personalised medicine is a significant improvement in care for all patients. In oncology, diagnostics innovation is bringing with it increasingly precise, accurate and complete identification of the genetic alterations in tumours. This enables the most suitable, targeted treatment to be developed for each individual patient, wherever the tumour itself might be. It is a full-blown revolution and a great promise for patients.
